Hello Heather here with a new project. For this project I have chosen a Dollar Store flat sided glass vase that I thought would look even better with a nice design on two sides. I will be decorating it using ArtFoamies Dragonfly Wing, Multi Leaf and Rose Silhouette, all by Rebekah Meier, and DecoArt Amaricana Acrylic paints.
To prepare the surfaces for painting, I washed the glass with vinegar, then rinsed and dried it. To give the acrylic paint a good surface to bond to, I taped off a rectangular area of two sides of the vase and created a matt finish using etchall.
For the background of my design I used the ArtFoamie Dragonfly Wing by Rebekah Meier. I loaded my stamp buddy with silver paint and blotted the ArtFoamie to load it then stamped the pattern on the entire taped off area on opposite sides of the vase, drying it with a hair dryer before turning it over.
Next, I applied some light grey to the Multi Leaf ArtFoamie using a flat brush, then layered some leaves at random over the Dragonfly Wing patterned background.
When the background leaves were dry I used the ArtFoamies Rose Silhuette and applied DecoArt Americana acrylic paints. I used a round brush and applied Cranverry Wine and Burgundy Wine to the flower bud. For the stem, leaf and thorns I used forest Green, Antique Green and Wasabi Green, applying them with a round brush. Over the grey leafy background I blotted one taller rose, then reloaded and added a second shorter one.
Once the rosebuds and stems were dry I added a few more leaves in Antique green with Forest Green stems, using a round brush, but just applying the paint to the top three leaves of the Multi Leaf, ArtFoamie.
